The text of Baudhāyana Dharmasutra has been edited several times.[1][2][3] The Mysore edition has been used in this work.

Baudhāyana is a teacher of the Krsnayajurveda. A complete set of the Baudhāyanasutras has not yet been recovered and has not been as carefully preserved as the sutras of Apastamba and Hiranyakesin. Dr. Burnell arranges Baudhayana’s sutras into six sutras, the Śrautasutra in 19 praśnas; Karmāntasutra in 20 adhyāyas; Dvaidhasutra in four praśnas; Grhyasutra in four prasnas ; Dharmasutra in four prasnas ; Sulvasutra in three adhyāyas. The commentators do not indicate the place originally assigned to the grhya, dharma and sulva sutras in the whole collection. Dr, Caland in his monograph[4]
